We have a sermon on our spiritual heritage to share tonight. First, we want to remember a select group of brave young men and women.  Those that gave all with their full measure of devotion to serve their country.  This is not a time to remember those that came back from our military conflicts.  But, I have to admitt that I do.  This is not a time to rejoice in the victory of battles won.  But I am sure that for some they will.  In my minds eye I can see those flag covered caskets of young men and women who died far from everything that they loved.  I can see the fathers with small children who lost their wife, the children who lost a parent, the parents who lost a child. I can see expectant mothers that lost a husband, and the surviving solders that lost a friend and comrad in arms.  We, as a people, have the tendancy to feel emotion, and then forget as life goes on.  I am thankful that our leaders set aside a day to give honor, and cause us to reflect on the cost that is paid for our freedoms.  It was not free and not cheap! For many, the nightmare of having to become both mother and father to their children's everyday life. I cannot imagine how a parent can work through the loss of their child so far away from them.  How do the solders that returned deal with the survivors guilt and face the family of those that returned?  I cannot even imagine how you deal with the brutality and swiftness of the loss.  Tonight, we give honor to those that paid the cost of our freedom with their life.   How do we give honor to them; remember their sacrifice and reach out to those that were impacted the most by their loss.  We are going to start the show with a song, and while it's playing I ask that you join me in a prayer for these families. Where are limited in ourselves, but GOD is not!
